You mean tweakBSD (for system configuration) or a combination of klilo + kuser 
+ some other bits. Some of Simon's firewall stuff, done in PyKDE, perhaps. 
It's been started before. It's been argued over before. And the consensus 
each time seems to have been that a lot of it is too system-specific, and the 
remainder already has tools for it.
